    Weight Gain - whats normal and how much do u expect to gain ? TRACK ON HERE !!!

    OK OK so some of us might not want to track our weight gain but i sure as hell am going to track mine after i gained 5 stone with ds1 ( 70lb) I ate and ate and ate. DS 2 AND DS3 werent that much but still 45-50lb so above the average suggested. Maybe if i had severe ms and couldnt eat i could only gain 35 lb !!! ha ha

    So im going to look up normal weight gain at various stages and then track my own month by month on here.

    I found this article :

    Pregnancy Weight Goals
    Overall, a woman who begins pregnancy at a healthy weight should gain between 25 and 35 pounds by the time of delivery. If you are underweight when you get pregnant, aim for 28 to 40 pounds. Overweight women should gain between 15 and 25 pounds. Obese women, those with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 30, need to gain just 15 pounds. Women carrying twins should gain between 35 and 45 pounds.

    Already since i got my BFP i have gained 5lb but thats going from the LE diet to eating my usual stuff wit lots of carbs and lots of snacking !! Im hoping it wont carry on piling on like this.

    ow much did you guys put on with past pregnancies ?

    I stacked on weight with my two boys.. I'm hoping to keep things VERY under control this time around regardless of gender. I'm busily googling healthy pregnancy eating plans etc etc. Maybe we should do a sticky, and every week keep track of our weight gain/loss? Just so that we can try and monitor it.....

    I'm hoping to gain a maximum of 15kgs (35lbs)

    Since ovulation (I cheated in the 2ww and came off the diet properly a few days ago) I have gained .4kg (that's like a quarter of a pound I think..) I'm pretty stoked that I haven't already piled on a couple of kgs, since I've been eating at least 500ish or more cals a day... this is looking hopeful.. lol
